Kurt Angle: ” I had a great career in TNA, maybe better than my WWE career.”
Kurt Angle is a true legend of professional wrestling. He has triumphed in several countries, including, in addition to the United States, Mexico and Japan. If the fans were asked, some would highlight their time in WWE, others their time in TNA. Some would even talk about New Japan Pro Wrestling.
Do you have any regrets at all in leaving WWE for TNA earlier in your career? The current General Manager of Monday Night Raw responded to this question during a recent Q&A session on Facebook. Surely many surprised what he said.
“I can’t. I had a great career in TNA, maybe better than my WWE career. I had a reduced schedule there. And I wrestled so many greats AJ, Joe, Sting, Roode…To name a few. My body couldn’t hold up to the rigorous schedule in WWE at the time. I always imagine the career I could have had if I stayed in WWE. It would have been incredible. BUT I couldn’t stay so I can’t keep asking myself “what if”?”
Another Question: If Kenny omega comes to WWE who would your dream match be for him.
“Seth Rollins or AJ Styles. I’d love a shot at Kenny as well. I have a list of dream opponents that I would like to compete against. These 3 are in the list.” Kurt said.
In August 2006, Angle left what is now his current company due to personal problems. A couple of weeks later, he arrived at what is now Impact Wrestling. In October he made his debut.
Then he began a career that lasted nine years, in which he became a six-time TNA World Weight Champion, X Division Champion or twice World tag team Champion In 2013 he was inducted into the Hall of Fame.
It is difficult for anyone to choose which company was more successful, but if we talk about championships, WWE takes the cake. Although in this case, it took a little longer to be inducted into the room, as it was the last year 2017.
What do you think about this issue? Where do you think Kurt Angle had a better career?
